The Edith Farnsworth House is located in Plano, Illinois 56 miles southeast of Chicago. This Mies van der Rohe designed masterpiece is a pilgrimage site for architects and designers worldwide and is considered one of the most important Modern assets in the United States. While visually minimal, the house‘s structure is extremely complex and interrelated. First conceived in 1945 as a country retreat for the client, Dr. Edith Farnsworth, the house as finally built appears as a structure of Platonic perfection against a complementary ground of informal landscape. This landscape is an integral aspect of Mies van der Rohe’s aesthetic conception. 5 hours (1-hour tour/plus travel time).
